Metabo HPT 10″ Miter Saw (C10FCGS)
Metabo HPT’s popular deal features a 10″ single bevel miter saw for just under $100, and it ships for free.
This is a basic miter saw, but sometimes that’s all you need. Be sure to check the reviews (79% 5-star, 15% 4-star) if you need convincing.
Dewalt 12″ Miter Saw (DWS715)
This Dewalt 12″ miter saw gives you greater cutting capacity compared to a 10″ saw, but without the cost, complexity, or weight of a sliding saw.
It features single-side bevel adjustment, and can cut up to 2×8 construction lumber at 90°.
Dewalt 12″ Sliding Miter Saw (DWS779) + FREE Stand
Dewalt’s popular 12″ sliding miter saw is back, and its Black Friday deal is a very good one. Buy the saw – on sale for $399 – and you also get a FREE portable miter saw stand.
This saw can cut up to 2×14 boards in a single pass at 90° and nested crown molding up to 7-1/2″.
Tip: Retailers are offering different types of free bonus stands.
Skil 10″ Dual Bevel Sliding Miter Saw (MS6305)
Skil’s 10″ dual bevel sliding miter saw should offer a good compromise between cost and cutting capacity.
Bosch 12″ Axial Glide Miter Saw (GCM12SD)
I can’t tell if Bosch’s 12″ axial-glide miter saw will be on sale for Black Friday, but it’s a “limited time” deal right now.
What’s special about this saw is that its axial-glide sliding arm mechanism requires very little rear clearance. In other words, you can place it closer to a wall than traditional sliding miter saws.
If you’re wondering if there’s a downside, yes, there is – its weight. Bosch’s axial glide saws tend to be a bit heavier than other saws I’ve used in the past.
It looks like this saw was redesigned recently, such as with new cutouts in its fences, and it’s unclear if any other changes were made.
Ridgid 12″ Dual Bevel Sliding Miter Saw (R4222)
If you’re looking for another option, this Ridgid 12″ sliding miter saw is a special buy at $379.
Ridgid Rolling Miter Saw Stand (AC9946)
If you need a rolling stand to make your miter saw more portable, this Ridgid universal stand is currently on sale at a good price.
It collapses for transport and also has side rollers for workpiece support.
Ryobi 18V Cordless 10″ Sliding Miter Saw + FREE Stand (PBLMS01K)
Here, you get a full Ryobi 18V cordless miter saw kit, with battery and charger, and on top of that you also get a FREE Ryobi universal miter saw stand.

I bought the Dewalt DWS779 on Black Friday pricing a while back. It is easy and low cost to add the LED shadow light found on the DWS780 which I don’t remember ever being offered at Black Friday pricing.
Which kit did you use to add the shadow light?
mm Tool Parts has the DWS779 Light Upgrade kit
I just installed the kit mentioned below (about $110 with shipping). Takes 30 minutes, and is fairly easy. Getting the wires to lay down nicely is the biggest hassle.
If needed, you could return the saw to original condition if needed for a warranty issue.
$400 is a pretty good deal on the saw, and the free stand is a nice bonus.
Also did the upgrade. Well worth it!
What led shadow light did you add? And how
Just picked up the Makita LS1019L on Amazon for $560, after $25 coupon.
Thanks! I added that to the end. It’s quite a bit lower at Amazon than other dealers, even without the $25 off $100 bonus coupon.
Hard to not mention the Ryobi 18v 10″ Sliding Miter that has a significant price drop to $269, and “free” stand. Price of the saw in cart is $162, stand is $107.
Thank you – I added it in!
Thanks. Ordered and it arrived today. Much nicer than I expected and definitely a great deal with the included stand and battery. I was considering the Bosch or Milwaukee, but for my home use this Ryobi seems ideal.
2018 the Ridgid Rolling Miter Saw Stand (AC9946) was $99. I bought mine in the Spring of 2022 for $149. Now I got the second one as a gift for $169. Price increases are getting off hand.
The DeWalt rolling stand is out of stock online FYI, but the folding one is not.
Hopefully they will get some more in soon.
It has been doing that.
It was OOS on Friday or Saturday and in-stock last night again when I checked and published this post. I’d think they’ll be getting more inventory on a rolling basis (no pun intended).
WOW I keep talking myself out of a 12″ slider as I don’t see where I have a need for that capacity. as opposed to a 12 non slider. but that stand deal is nice and the non rolling stand is that larger one with the slideouts for supports and it’s a good stand. If you don’t want/need the wheels.
I sort of don’t but I have a dewalt mitresaw stand now the smaller cheaper one. and I’m actually looking hard at the Ridgid 12″ non slider with the LED. it’s 299.
If you don’t go through a lot of blades, it isnt a bad idea to consider a smaller size saw. Of course there are deals on blades, but seems there are more for 7¼” & 10″ sizes, where as 12″ is sort of a premium size. If you do a lot of different projects, the blades can really add up.
We purchased a 12″ sliding miter for some personal finishing projects on a cabin/house, where as a 10″ would have been a much better choice. Especially being able to swap blades with the table saw at the time.
On that note, I wouldn’t mind seeing a 8¼” miter to match cordless table saw blades.
Even if they are the same size, they aren’t necessarily interchangeable. A table saw blade will have a higher hook angle, something like 20deg, to help pull the piece into the blade. Where a sliding miter will have a low or even negative hook angle to prevent the blade from lifting the work piece up.
They will work, but using a table saw blade in a sliding miter or a sliding miter blade in a table saw is not going to give you the best results, and can be dangerous. Just an fyi.
Beat me to it.
I must admit I am sometimes guilty of running 12″ chop saw blades in my table saw. I do this when I don’t want to risk my expensive Forrest blades with suspect materials; it’s hard to find 12″ table saw blades in my area but 12″ chop saw blades are easy to find any nearly always on sale. I am always extra careful about the kickback risk due to the different angles though.
My issue is the slider vs the non slider. I don’t know I’d use the slider capacity but I can see using the full 12in blade capacity.
and I see some reports where a slider isn’t quite as accurate, or accuracy stable as a non slider – something the bosch glide is supposed to fix. probably a whole other can of worms.
so one movement out of the mix I think has merits and I don’t need the capacity. My baseboards are under 7 in and my crown I think is still under 7 inch so I’m not that worried over it.
To that end the ridgid appears to be as good as the dewalt comes with the cut line already and is cheaper. It’s why it keeps coming up on my hit list.
I have a 12″ Ridgid slider. It’s big.
Sometimes that’s a hassle, other times it’s awesome.
On it’s folding, rolling stand it takes up quite a bit of room in my garage. I wouldn’t trade for a smaller one, but I could see someone making that choice if they had less room.
I just wanted to take moment and yell into the wind about how bad the mitre saw deals are in Canada. I’m looking for one for a gift for my cousin and I’m surprised how much they’ve gone up in price since I bought mine a couple years ago.
Right now a USD is worth 1.35CAD, yet:
– that $269 USD Ryobi WITH a free stand is $498 CAD here without the stand,
– the Ridgid rolling stand for $169 USD is $279 CAD, and
– the Dewalt 12″ DWS715 for $199 USD is $389 CAD.
I realize there’s more than a currency conversion at play. Import costs, purchase timing or sales quantity also have an effect – I usually use a 1.5X calculation when evaluating a deal, but these are all much worse than that.
There are other saws on special here for black friday too, but they aren’t the same models and defy a direct comparison.
That’s my whole rant.
depending on where you are it might be worth a drive to the states.
I bet you’re right! I’m not THAT far from the border, but regretfully there’s no Home Depots nearby on the other side. I’ve used a border-shipping agency in the past, but still a hassle.

The Bosch 12″ is an Amazing tool with brilliant design features. While it may be heavier than most, it’s a powerhouse for any shop!
The mechanical movement is sooooo smooth and front end mechanics for all mitre angle changes are so much nicer than having to reach across your station to the back of most other rigs.
The other brands definitely have their respective qualities but having used all brands heavily in the last couple of years, I’ve found the Bosch to be the one for My Shop!
I’ve had mine for 9 years now. Except for the weight, I have no complaints. I have it mounted on their gravity rise stand – that came with the saw. We had bought several for the business – and had some issues with at least one of them (fence was not coplanar, table was dished). So, I was careful to inspect mine carefully and try it out. Back then – the box from Bosch was flimsy – -but mine came strapped down to a wood pallet. I was expecting to need to tweak it a bit – but right out of the box mine was dead-on at every setting I tried.
In the years I’ve used it (not day in day out) moderately I’ve not encountered wear/slop in the axial glide mechanism – but some reviewers make that complaint. The laser guide (LS010 – Bosch # 2 610 005 290) – is just so-so in terms of visibility – but Bosch may have changed that out on newer saws – or offer it only separately.
From the picture (or artwork) that Stuart posted – it looks like that they may have made a few tweaks to the design. Mine came with both right and left hold-down clamps (Bosch #1 609 B02 315) and a length stop (Bosch # 1 600 Z00 01V) that you can swap side to side. The stock 60T blade (Bosch #1 609 B00 209) was neither worthless nor good (no surprise) – but was quickly relegated to rough cutting tasks.
Rigid R4251 12 in. Dual Bevel Sliding Miter Saw, made by Delta is on sale for $379 for Black Friday! Oddly it’s cheaper than 10”.
That model isn’t available for purchase at all right now.
You are correct, and it was like that when the sale was first announced, but I kept checking and found it was available a week ago and got my order in right away! Think it’s a great price ! I grabbed the rolling stand as well.
Odd. I placed an order online for pickup in store… and picked it up in store same day. Concord store #0634.
I want to add that HD says other stores in my area also carry the 12”. But I guess not all stores have em and it doesn’t look like “ship to home” is available.
My husband asked for a compound miter saw and a workbench for Christmas. He wants to replace our deck with a trex deck and create some baseboards. I would like to try to make a fence and maybe add crown molding to our house. He seems to like a moveable cart for the saw. I don’t know anything about any of these brands, what size saw he needs, how much power he needs, if it needs to be a sliding saw, if it needs a light, and how many replacement blades/batteries (plus anything else) he needs. Are any of these deals something I should be looking at getting for him?
The vast majority of the saws listed here are corded. There are only two mentioned which use batteries, the Ryobi and the Bosch both described as “18V cordless”.
Any of the saws listed here can cut 2×4’s, normal fence pickets, and Trex deck boards. However the larger size (12″ blade) can cut larger sizes of crown molding, and the sliding saws can cut wider boards than the non-sliding versions, especially if you are making angled cuts for corners. A 12″ saw can cut a 4×4 fence or deck post in one motion, that cannot be done on a 10″ saw. I would recommend a 12″ blade size.
Any of these saws will come with a general purpose or “framing” blade, that should be appropriate for cutting the wood for your deck. There are special blades for cutting Trex, they will be advertised as “trex blades”. For trim work like baseboards and crown molding you will want a “fine finish” blade.
I’m not sure what your budget is but I have a very hard time not recommending the DWS779. It’s a great saw that’s easy to use, and while it’s not the cheapest model it’s also far from the most expensive either. It’s a contractor favorite for a reason. I don’t think you necessarily need the sliding feature but it’s nice to have, and it’s hard to argue with $400 for a great saw plus a stand.
I don’t think a shadow light is strictly necessary but it sure is nice!
I would second the DWS779! It’s a great saw. The dust collection could probably be better for Trex, but it’s great for everything you listed. If you want a premade bench, Sjobergs are nice-looking, or a Ron Paulk bench/plans to make one. Hope this helps!
Jennifer, first off, if he doesn’t need storage in the mobility of saw, I.e., if by “a cart” you just mean it needs to be easily portable and then stable when set up, the Bosch T-4 so called “gravity rise” miter saw stand with wheels makes life very easy. It doesn’t take much effort to change from traveling mode to stable cutting platform mode and the reverse. When set up supporting the cutting, it has long extensions that will help with long mounding or trex beams. It works with most of the better miter saws, not just Bosch brand. I have one with my Harbor Freight Hercules miter saw and it allows me to use the combination. I would not be up to lifting a big miter saw back and forth. It’s expensive, .around $400 at say Acme Tools right now, but if mobility is a concern you should look into it.
As far as the miter saw itself, for flexibility, a sliding compound miter saw with double bevel (meaning it can cut to either side) will give your Husband more flexibility than non-sliding, single bevel, non compound miter saws (a there’s various combinations of those features available) and so speed things up. if expense is a consideration, you may look into renting a miter saw, see how he likes it. Some of the Home Depots rent tools. After a lot of research I bought the HF Hercules, which is equivalent to the Dewalt 780, but for less. There are other miter saws out there just as good, it’s a crowded field, from Mikita, Metabo, Milwaukee, Skill I think, Rigid, Dewalt and others. I’ll let other Toolguyd community weigh in on their experiences and recommendations. Same for true carts with storage, can’t help there, except HD is having a sale on Husky brand storage and some of those seemed to be carts. I have a Husky tool bench and a large tool chest, and they meet my needs. I treat them pretty gently and so there’s been no deterioration, I don’t need more expensive storage than that.
That 12 inch sliding Ridgid miter saw is actually on sale right now for $299.
